Took a social media sabbatical during this year’s Met Gala? I got ya covered.
Monday’s red carpet raised a few questions.
- Is it “Met Gala” or “Met Ball”?
- Is there something beyond the red carpet that everyone dresses up for or is that it?
- How the F did Lady Gaga make it up those stairs wearing heels higher than Miley Cyrus during a concert?
Truth be told, the ingenuity one would expect in a “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme was almost entirely MIA. And pretty much everyone who deemed it acceptable to adhere to the dress code (which was a courtesy extended by very few of the attendees) only went as far as mirrored metallics, with a few notable exceptions:
Alicia Vikander elected to wear a futuristic mini and what appear to be hiking boots.
Emma Watson put everyone to shame by wearing a dress made entirely out of plastic bottles (what, like it’s hard?).
And Solange Knowles went as a scrambled egg.
Though the carpet was a bit underwhelming -metal? for a digital-aged themed party? groundbreaking- the final product was once again a parade of dresses I would give my first-born to own.
And I’d probably have to, as most of these dresses cost more than my entire university education.
